Revenge is easy, but justice is worth fighting for…
Kenna is tired of being lied to—and hunted by the very allies she once trusted. Unearthing the dark secrets of the superhero world has not only endangered her life, now her boyfriend faces execution for crimes he didn’t commit and her mother is being held captive in a secret governmental prison.
Kenna is determined to stand up for what’s right and save those she loves from unspeakable fates. It’s time for the betrayal to end. It’s time for the real criminals to face justice.
But the truth is even more terrifying than Kenna could imagine. A conspiracy threatens the fate of heroes, villains, and all of humanity. If Kenna’s going to survive, she must draw on her deepest strength: her resilience. Because when Kenna’s pushed to the limit, she doesn’t break down. She fights back.
Relentless is the second book in the young adult Hero Agenda duology by Tera Lynn Childs and Tracey Deebs. I absolutely loved the first book in the series, Powerless. It got my super hero mojo going big time. I loved the world these two authors created with all of the villains, super villains, heroes, superheroes, and the ordinaries. Relentless picks up right where Powerless leaves off, and these are books that you must read in order.
I remember saying in my review of book 1 that I held my breath for the last 10 pages. Well, that has nothing on the start of this book. I loved that we were immediately dropping into some serious action with the characters. It was great to go back into the book and see all of the familiar faces that I loved from the first book. Kenna is even more bad- a** than she was in the last book. I feel like Kenna really comes into her own in Relentless. She steps up big time, and I was super happy to see that.
Just like in Powerless, I really loved the group of characters. There are villains, heroes and ordinaries all working together. They bickered and fought and formed really great friendships. And romances… Overall, this is an excellent continuation to Powerless. (notice that I didn’t say ending.) I know that this is a duology, but I am really, really keeping my fingers crossed that these authors will take us into another journey into the Hero Agenda world. I feel like there is still so much more that we can see with them!
Bottom line: If you are a fan of X-men, of the Avengers (or of the DC world) you will love this book. If you are looking for a book where hero doesn’t always equal a good guy and villain doesn’t always equal a bad guy, Relentless and the Hero Agenda series is the perfect read for you. I think you will love it just as much as I did.Perfect for fans of x-men & The avengers. @BookBriefs reviews Relentless @TeraLynnChilds & Tracey Deebs @HeroAgenda @SourcebooksFire Click To Tweet
